Sample error



All of these error messages are a result of a problem with the distsrv probe that was released with UIM version 8.1. and relates to distsrv version 5.30.
Please download the distsrv link below and replace the distsrv that came with the 8.1 distribution.


Please login into the primary and import this into the archive and make sure to say yes to overwrite.

Then please distribute this to the hub, from the primary hub archive, that is having the issue.
